This is the second time that I have done this tour, this time bringing my brother and his wife. I was so happy to do it again and they were super enthusiatic about it as well. We are all people that like food and enjoy learning. This is what this tour provides. The tour guide was super charismatic and friendly as well as knowledgable not only about the specific stops we made but also about different foods' production, architecture, local history, and made great recommendations of other places to check out in the city. The foods were awesome and we definitely did not need to eat more afterwards....although we did. Could not recommend this enough for anyone mildly interested in food to those in the industry (as I am). Couldn't be better! Can't wait till the next time...maybe trying one of the other locations...maybe not.

We took two other tours that were great. This one seemed to be a commercial for many restaurants that we didn't eat at and we were taken to many locations, given a talking to, and then redirected without any purpose other than to looks at buildings (I guess). We left early and had a slice at Joe's Pizza.

Friends told me about these tours and how much they enjoyed them. They were right on! Our guide Burt was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend these tours and look forward to taking another one.

It was even better than expected

I new the tour would be great but it was even better than expected. My only worry was the portions would to small for my boyfriend and I but I was wrong we were fine until much later. We learned a lot and found some really cool places to explore later that we may have never noticed. I was very pleased with not only the food but also the details and history our very nice guide provided us.

My sister and I went with our 3 nephews, aged 19,19,and 17 and we all loved it. Plenty of food and our guide, Burt was perfect. Very accommodating and knowledgeable. We are planning on taking another one next year.

I really enjoyed my Greenwick Village tour. I would highly recommend it. My company has a bus trip every year and I plan to take another tour next year.. I am trying to learn the different parts of city and I can't think of a better way.

Tour guide ( Burt ) extremely knowledgeable re history of the area and the restaurants. Wide variety of establishments visited and the quality of the food was first class. It wet our appetite and we returned again and again to the Greenwich Village area.

Tasty Food & Informative Guide

We took the Greenwich Village tour - food was extremely tasty and our guide was sharp - we ate well and walked away feeling like we knew something about the neighborhood as well as why the food tasted good. We had a bit of a logistical snag (our fault) and working through that was a snap as well.

The leader Bert was amazing--very knowlegeable and funny! The food was awesome, lots of interesting trivia, loved the stuff about the architecture and buildings we were looking at and even had a celebrity sighting on our tour! Would definitely recommend, already plan on doing some of the other tours offered and we've told our friends about it! They were very accommodating (I'm a vegetarian) and everything on the tour was timed perfectly--not too long, not too short--just right amount of time to get it all in! They thought about bathroom breaks, every detail was well planned out. Took my husband who is a foodie for his birthday and he LOVED it!
